I’ve been meaning to post about Dr. No Effects for a while now because they have the coolest looking graphics on any pedal I’ve seen but this morning I was browsing through my Twitter feed and Rebecca Dirks (the person who single handedly made Rig Rundowns one of the coolest things to watch on YouTube for Premier Guitar) post a link to the Dr. No Ford Falcon Fuzz pictured above, hands down THE craziest and funniest looking effect pedal I have ever seen.
This particular pedal began life as a custom order for Eric Corton of Cortonville, a music platform helping to get artists noticed but is now available as a limited edition pedal:
“One morning I woke up and had this idea to build a DrNo-Effect in a toy die cast Car. The housed effect had to own a really small circuit to fit in the trunk or under the hood of this 1/18 toy car. Besides that it had to sound really good and vintage. Because the Fuzz type of guitar effects is really upcoming again, I decided to goal on creating a small Fuzz circuit that would be awesome to play. The type of Car was going to be the awesome US made 1963 Ford Falcon muscle car (almost the same year the first commercial fuzzes were build, like the Maestro). The effect became a Silicon Fuzz with Fuzz and Volume Pot, very simple but effective!”
